Deadline reports that Anthony Michael Hall (The Breakfast Club The Dark Knight, Weird Science), Danny Trejo (Machete, Predators) and Mickey Rourke (Sin City) will star in Dead in Tombstone, the Roel Reine-directed action adventure film that begins filming next week in Bucharest, Romania. Bloody Disgusting exclusively reported the film back in January.
Penned by Shane Kuhn and Brendan Cowles, with revisions by Michael Weiss, “Trejo plays Guerrero Hernandez, leader of the Blackwater Gang of outlaws. But after freeing his half-brother, Red (Hall), from prison, Guerrero’s plan to loot the mining town of Edendale backfires spectacularly, when he is double crossed by his half-sibling. After making a deal with the Devil (Rourke), Guerrero comes back from the dead a year later to seek his revenge. The town, which has presciently been renamed Tombstone will soon have its dusty streets running knee-deep in a river of blood.” It sounds like The Crow only with a jerk of a protag.
Reine is a direct-to-video legend taking the reigns on The Marine 2, The Lost Tribe, The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption, Death Race 2 and Death Race: Inferno.
